Flash-mob dance to YMCA in Scots high school


SIXTH-year pupils at a Scots high school have become an internet sensation after breaking out in a YMCA flash-mob dance to celebrate their last day.

The dance by pupils at Bell Baxter High School in Cupar, Fife has already received over 120,000 hits on YouTube.

And students from around the world have been getting in touch with the school to congratulate the pupils.

Around 200 broke into the dance in the school canteen performing to songs such as the YMCA, the Macarena, The Time Warp and Michael Jackson’s Thriller.

School rector Philip Black also had a starring role which was caught on camera by media studies teacher Eddie Gaines.

Mr Black said that he was happy to help out the pupils in their dance.

He added:

“We are one of the biggest schools in Scotland, so we’re saying goodbye to around 200 sixth years who are going on study leave.

“It was all their idea and they deserve credit for it. Hopefully it provides some light relief for them at this time of year.

“I think they thought if they could get their grumpy old head teacher involved, it would do a lot of good. “

The video begins with the title

“Not every school is ordinary!!!!!! “

A comment from one viewer on YouTube says

“This is? amazing!’ and another adds:

“If every school did this once? in a while, the kids would be so much happier.”
